Description

The Canon V-20 is very similar to the V-10, but it has more RAM and the main color is black instead of white. It was initially aimed at the Japanese market. The year after two variations were introduced in Europe. The Canon V-20 (EU) and Canon V-20 (FR).

Size: 402(W) x 62(H) x 218(L)mm
Weight: 3.5kg

For the photography fans, this machine is recommended to be used with an innovative digital Interface Unit DMB between the computer and the Canon T90 Single-lens reflex (SLR) camera. DMB-90 means Data Memory Back 90.

The V-20 computer has been localised for the European market - see V-20 (EU) and V-20 (FR).
